Charles Kaufmann: Angela Brown Sings 'The Stars' (3:36) of Samuel Coleridge-Taylor on YouTube

[Angela Brown]

Charles Kaufmann, artistic director of The Longfellow Chorus, sends this word to AfriClassical:

Dear Coleridge-Taylor Friends,
You may be interested in seeing the YouTube video I've just posted featuring soprano Angela Brown singing with our orchestra a song by Coleridge-Taylor, "The Stars," which is a setting of a poem by his friend Kathleen Easmon Simango. Noteworthy about this video are the two images of the original manuscript of The Stars in Coleridge-Taylor's distinctive handwriting:

Best wishes,
Charles Kaufmann”
